Kids Plants in Watercolour Workshop (21 January 2022)
Kids Plants in Watercolour Workshop with Leticia Collins: 10am – 12 noon Friday 21 January.
Drop the kids off for a special watercolour painting experience with artist Leticia Collins and... plants! We start this 2-hour workshop by learning the basics of watercolour painting to get them started with colour mixing, water colour techniques, tools, and mark making. After covering the basics, we are ready to produce two watercolour paintings inspired by the plants around us.
Our first painting will be an experimental watercolour, playing with form and negative space, colour and light. We will then paint a botanical watercolour interpreting the beauty of live plants through watercolour. This final piece could be abstract or realist, monochrome or multi-colour, big or small, whatever you can imagine!
Leticia Collins’ art is strongly inspired by nature and she uses watercolours to capture the ephemeral moments from the natural world. Her watercolours are painted onto paper in often experimental and abstract forms.
All levels of experience are welcome for this workshop, and all materials and equipment for the workshop will be supplied. This workshop is suitable for children of all ages.
